U.S. Representative (R-Ohio), Speaker of the United States House of Representatives

Boehner: With regard to the threat to the capitol, coming frankly not far from where I live, the first thing that strikes me is that we would have never known about this had it not been for the FISA program and our ability to collect information on people who pose an imminent threat. I'm going to say this one more time because you’re gonna hear about it for months and months to come as we attempt to reauthorize the FISA program. Our government does not spy on Americans unless they’re Americans who are doing things that frankly tip off our law enforcement officials to an imminent threat. It was our law enforcement officials and those programs that helped us stop this person before he committed a heinous crime in our nation's capital.

Russert: Do you know something we do not, because apparently he was on social media talking about this? Is there more to this that we don’t know? Boehner: We will let us story roll out there, but it is far more than just that.
